Panasonic HC-V250

 

Easy to carry, very light weight, very sharp images. Can film from a very far distance. Excellent value for money.

The viewing screen is smaller and long distance filming doesn't reach as far as previous model

Very user friendly

Nothing really bad, sound could benefit from being a little lounder.

Panasonic HC-V250

 

A super camcorder, easy to use & great image quality. Just come back from Cyprus for 11 days & used it every day. The zoom is excellent. Just have to be careful when stopping filming to make sure it has paused otherwise it carries on even after closing...
